I assume it sees your wireless network correctly?  Can you manually create a profile for that network to see if it'll connect then?  Maybe it's having an issue detecting your networks config (ssid, security type/key, etc)

check what channels the wireless is broadcasting - you can use inssider from www.metageek.net -

if it sends on channel 13 - try switcing to channel 1, 6 or 11

Can you restart the router to make sure the issue is not at the router?  At worst it would rule out the router if it does not work.
